- Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014 – WIOA was designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. Core programs administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) are:
- Employment and training services for adults, dislocated workers, and youth and Wagner-Peyser employment services administered by the DOL through formula grants to states and Tribal Nations; and
- Adult education and family literacy programs, as well as State Vocational Rehabilitation Services programs that assist eligible individuals with disabilities in obtaining employment; both core programs are administered by the U.S. Department of Education.
